The Familiar of Zero

The Familiar of Zero

In a world where magic is a reality, the young Louise is at the bottom of her class. Dubbed "Zero" by her classmates at Tristein Academy (due to her zero success rate for magic), Louise (along with all first year students) was charged with summoning a familiar; and instead of a cute magical creature, the familiar arrived in the form of... Saito Hiraga, a normal Japanese boy who was abruptly teleported from his own world?! Can both Louise and Saito come to terms with their new and complicated "relationship" and (more importantly) help Saito find a way home?

If you have seen either of these animes you will undoutfully like the other. They both go along the lines of the magical schoolgirls Vs. one protaganist and have one or more of the schools students after them. Both have there funny parts but more so in Zero. Both are good animes so I recomend seeing one if youve seen the other.

Zero no Tsukaima and Happiness are two of a kind I think.

They are both mostly a one on one romance that takes a sideline to the story. Both center around a magic school with a female mage lead character and a romantic interest that is more than he seems.Though the female leads are exact opposites of each other...

both take place in a magical world though the story in zero no tsukaima is more engaging. also both involve a school that teaches magic.

Earl and Fairy

Earl and Fairy

Throughout the ages, fairy doctors served as liaisons between humans and fairies; but in the present time of the 19th century, fairies are nothing more than an old wives' tale. Nineteen-year-old Lydia Carlton is one of the only remaining fairy doctors and enjoys a quiet life in the countryside of England - that is, until the dashing Edgar, for mysterious reasons, whisks her away on a daring adventure. Said to be the descendent of the earl of the fairy nation, Edgar desires the noble sword of the merrow that serves as proof to his lineage. Though his motives and origins are questionable, Lydia now sets forth to help Edgar on his quest.

Both of these animes are Romances. Both also revolves around magic or Fairies. The Romance of the animes are related to memories.

As in Happiness!, Yuma is a male character who plays a role that pretwnds to have no magical power. He is infact the strongest person there. He doesn't use his magic because of his memories against his mother. Haruhi is a girl from his past, And she remembers Yuma from the past as a super powerful mage with power that was very warm and good hearted. That was the last time he ever used his power as he made all the gravity go wack. I just recentally finished this anime, And i really loved the art work in the anime.

As in Earl and Fairy, Lydia has a past memory too. The memory makes it hard for her to fall in love. Edgar is a prince who says to Lydia that he loves her very much. Both Lydia and Edgar makes plans to kill each other thoughout the episodes. Every time either of them plans to kill the other they dont; but instead the events does a 180 and the other does attempt of suiside >_> By Pills, Legendary swords, etc etc

I really liked watching both of these animes, I know you will too.

Galadriel Galadriel says...

if you're looking for sweet romance shows, which involves fairies and other magic aspects then look no further, Hakushaku to Yousei and Happiness! are the perfect choices. Both of them deal with the past memories of the main protagonists, both of them are very comedic as well as dramatic at some points. So if you like one of this shows be sure to check the other one as well.

Both set in school. Both involving girls chassing one guy, ang thy both involve people that one,as a human, would consider amazing. When finding out that they both have someone they just met to be together with each protaginist find themselves in tight spots constantly being misunderstood and attacked for it.Both prove to be funny and are worth the time to watch.

If you've seen one you will most likely enjoy watching the other. Both have a single girl the main charactor is set on. In both the main protaginist fight an overwelming power to get closer and finally become one with the other in marrage or as a couple. They both also have a serious yet somtimes funny or weird feel about them.

Maburaho

Maburaho

However, unlike enrollment to the school would suggest, his magical prowess is below-average. In fact, he can only use magic eight times in his life, or he will die. But not all is lost: Kazuki's family tree includes the latent genetic material for magical greatness. After that information leaks out, Kazuki suddenly becomes the most popular male student in the school, and girls from powerful magician families begin chasing him to get his genes.

Both of the animes are about magic and they both have a main character who's power is greater than anyone knows. If you liked Maburaho then you will like Happiness! and vice-versa.

Shakugan no Shana

Shakugan no Shana

Sakai Yuuji thought he was a normal high school student, until one fateful day when time stopped. Watching in horror, he witnesses a monster devouring the "frozen" people around him; but luckily for Yuuji, he is saved by a sword-wielding red-headed girl that calls herself a "Flame Haze". The girl informs him that he has been dead for some time now and that his current self is merely a replacement for the human that he used be while alive. He is, she says, merely a torch whose life will come to an end when the blue flame in his chest ceases to burn. After this rude awakening, Yuuji realizes that he is able to see the flames of life in other "torches"; and after discovering that a friend of his is also a torch -- and her life is burning out faster than his – he gains the courage to live out the rest of his life with meaning. Will Yuuji be able to find his place in the world before he ceases to exist?

Under the tutelage of the esteemed mage (and nightclub owner) Oyamada Masami, she will learn what it means to be able to bring magic to others' lives.

spate spate says...

Both are melancholy stories of modern, everyday magic. The main difference between the two is that Happiness is more of a high school romance with a bit of a plot arc to it, while Someday's Dreamers is a bit more of a character study and seems to deal more with the day-to-day of post-school life.

Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha and Happiness! are both light-hearted shows that revolve around teenage girls and their magic. In both cases, things are resolved without any lives at risk or any hearts broken, so people who are looking for a simple show to chase away the darkness of the real world should enjoy both of these.

DuskFey DuskFey says...

Happiness! and Neo Angelique Abyss may seem like an odd pair at first, because while they both follow a girl with magical abilities, the tone of the shows is pretty different. Happiness! is a celebration of youth and a reflection of the sweet things that it brings. Neo Angelique Abyss is definitely the more mature of these two series, because it has higher stakes and far more pressure on the heroine. With that in mind, however, the basic story is pretty similar and both shows are quite visually appealing. If you like one show, it's certainly worth watching at least one episode of the other.

Shugo Chara!! Doki and Happiness! are both shows that are really excited about their titles, but that's not why I'm making this connection. These two series follow girls with magical powers as they work to make the world a better place. I think Happiness! fits better with the second installment of Shugo Chara than the first because Doki was more light-hearted and had less tension than the original.
